Laurie Busby

Laurie and I had a wonderful time in Jamaica last week for Thanksgiving.  We returned to the states Nov. 30th in Ft. Lauderdale and drove back to Holiday that evening.

The next day (Sunday) we spent the morning unpacking and everything was as normal.  I left the house around 12:15 to run to the store and returned about 20 minutes later.

I did not see Laurie in the house so walked out onto our Lanai and found her face down, passed out but breathing on her right side.  It was obvious she took a hard fall that injured the right side of her head.  

I observed her and tried to revive but she was out.  It was obvious something serious had occurred so I called 911.  While on the phone with 911 she suddenly raised her head, looked at me and had the most terrifying look in her eyes.  Her mouth gnarled into a scary way and she went into a seizure.  She was convulsing violently and it was all I could to keep her with me.  I thought I was losing her.

The paramedics showed up and she was transported to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson Fl.  (727) 819-2929.

She has been on life support for the first two days. The took her off of the ventilator Tuesday morning and she came out of that sedation she was a handful.

They have done several test, including Cat Scans and MRI and it appears she has a brain tumor on her right frontal lobe.  Cat Scan of lungs and abdomen proved negative so they are now focusing on the Tumor.

They will be doing a biopsy within a day or two so at that point we will know the severity of the lesion.

I have established this site as a place to go to get updates as I am being a bit overwhelmed with texting.

Please have her in your prayers.
